Billy Joel’s Grammy Award-winning band will play a free show on Jack’s stage

PHILADELPHIA — July 26, 2022 — The band that helped create some of Billy Joel’s hit records, The Lords of 52nd Street, is coming to Rivers Casino Philadelphia for a free show. The band will rock the Jack’s Bar + Grill stage on Aug. 26 at 9:30 p.m.

The Lords of 52nd Street, featuring Richie Cannata on the saxophone, Liberty Devitto on drums and Russell Javors on guitar, aided in the creation of some of Billy Joel’s greatest records. The band and Joel recorded Grammy Award-winning albums including 52nd Street, Glass Houses and Nylon Curtain.

These legends of the Billy Joel band recorded and toured with the Piano Man in the 1970s and ’80s and continue to bring knockout songs to the stage today. The Lords of 52nd Street entertains its fans with classics such as “My Life,” “New York State of Mind” and “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me,” to name just a few.

Cannata, Devitto and Javors recorded and toured with Joel for over a decade, and after a 30-year separation reunited in 2014 to play songs from the band’s catalogue. The Lords of 52nd Street continues to thrill fans as it plays favorites including “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant,” “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)” and “You May Be Right.”
